JUST A NOTE 
t 

LAST YEAR'S SENIORS left Saint Mary's with a 
tcary farc\\ell to friends and teachers, left with full hopes 
of tomorrow, left with a bucketfull of memories which 
will doubtless cause many a chuckle later on from an 
eighty-year old Saint Mary's "girl." And so do we 
leave throughout the years. But the class of 1944 left 
a gift to us; they gave a name to our school, "Saint 
Mary's Pre-Flight School for Angels," and this title we 
have used for the theme of our '45 yearbook. 

Here is our record of study, play, and worship. Think 
kindly of this "angel," for she once was you.

HONOR COUNCIL 

Symbolizing Student Go\'crnmcnt, the little black notebook has 
been in capable hands with the Honor Council this year. Each class 
elects its representatives for the qualities of fairness and understanding. 
Excellent leadership and interest in school acti\'ities has made this 
body descr\'ing of all the respect it has earned.

THE HALL COUNCIL 

Each member of the Hall Council works twenty-four hours a day 
keeping the workings of the Student Government closer to the girls. 
The hall presidents have the difficult task of regulating dormitory life, 
not only by instructing, and sometimes reproving, but also by setting 
an example in their own behavior.

THE LEGISLATIVE BODY 

The Legislative Body discusses, revises, passes or rejects all petitions 
from the school group which deal directlv with student problems. 
Composed of Student Gox'ernmcnt oihcers, faculty, and class repre- 
sentatives, and the Handbook editor, this body tries to smooth out 
problems which confront the majority of students. Each petition is 
carefully considered. This organization is keen, practical, and best 
suited to handle all student problems in the most democratic fashion.

We, the Seniors, are now leaving Saint Mary's, and the last year 
with the stately oak trees has passed both slowly and fast. Although 
all of us started off a year or so before this, we did not really start to 
live until we were well established in the crowded domains of Holt and 
the Rock and had succeeded in orientating the new girls amid puddles 
of September rain. We took over student organizations, tried hard, 
and finally reached our stride. The Senior Dance became a New 
York Roof Garden, and an amazing number of attractive men made 
themselves a\'ailable. We faced our first Senior exams (and were we 
worried over quality points), then started the second semester. By 
now we realized that we were a part of Saint Mary's, and that Saint 
Mary's had become a part of us. Hot weather came, and so did final 
exams. Then gray caps and gowns hid white dresses on June 4, and 
we got our diplomas.

Frightened, self-conscious, smiling at Kate and Sara Coe, we found 
oursehes at college. It took time, but at last Student Government, 
organizations, and illustrious seniors were no longer names in the

. . . White dresses for Commencement to be hung in Holt next year."

This year the Bulletin, edited by Margaret Rodwell, has been revised, enlarged, and brightened up

A great time was had by all this year on the Belles. Maria started off by amazing the new girls 
with an issue the first Friday of school, and continued with a "Pin-up" contest, sharp editorials, and 
pink bunnies. The staff had to work pretty hard and consistently to get out the four-page "news- 
paper" every two weeks, and it always arrived on Friday. 

The annual? . . . well, here it is, and it represents all of our school year, and of course trials of the

Sigma 
Lambda's 




Sigma Lambda and E.A.P. Literary Societies, led by Gocrch and C'utls, have been a haven and 
a magnet to all of us burning with the creative bug. Poems, essays, short stories, book reviews, 
and debates have moulded our programs from snappy discussions to pleased musings over efforts 
of a fellow "artiste." All masterpieces from each society are judged, and, at the annual banquet, 
a cu]j is awarded to the most talented group. Talent was most abundant with the E.A.P.'s in 
1944; the)' won the cup. 




E.A.P.'s. 






FRENCH CLUB 

Outside speakers, marionette shows, songs, and group discussions in French make up the two meetings 
per month of the French Club. "Madame" directs us with case and skill; Mademoiselle Lucy Seamen 
is president. 

(The Pi Chapter of the Sigma Pi Alpha, honorary language fraternity, was organized at Saint Mary's 
late in the year. Margaret .Skidmore is president of the SMS chapter.) 

DOCTOR'S DAUGHTERS CLUB 

A major part of Saint Mary's war work is carried on by this small group of physicians' daughters under 
the super\ision of Mrs. Naylor, resident nurse. This work over the past year has included work for Chinese 
War Relief, rolling bandages, and the study of home nursing. Stuart \'erdery is president, and Jane Peete, 
vice president. 





POLITICAL SCIENCE CLUB 

Group discussions and guest speakers have introduced members of the Political Science C'lulj to election 
problems, U. S. Government, and the "business world." This group, composed of students in history, 
economics, goxernment. and sociology, is directed by Mr, Guess. May Bunn is president. 

GRANDDAUGHTERS 

Daughters and granddaughters of Saint Mary's girls have joined this club to sponsor the sale of Address 
Books at Christmas, to contribute funds to send cigarettes overseas for service men, to assist in the solicita- 
tion of funds for the Centennial Dri\e and to carry on the traditions of generations. They have done a 
fine job. 





DRAMATIC CLUB 

Rehearsals, stage sets, make-up, lighting, and properties keep Dramatic Club members quite busy, as 
any member will testify. Conscientious efforts and the capable direction of Miss Davis, Annette, and 
other officers have produced grand shows for us. Pride and Prejudice and As Ton Like It top the list. 

GLEE CLUB 

The Glee Club entertained us with a Christmas concert and a spring cantata, and they very graciously 
entertained our service men at the Y.W.C.A. throughout the year . . . Miss Cate, director, and Gwen Hughes, 
president, ably directed these SMS chirpers. 




CANTERBURY 
CLUB 




With rollintj bandages, weekend conferences, Sunday night lectures in the parlor, suppers in the hut, prograins, discussions, 
all under the helpful hand of Mr. Hughes, the Canterbury Club strives for fellowship, religious unity, prayer and study.

"Accentuate physical fitness" was the cry of the Federal Security Agency of the United States OfHce of 
Education this year as well as pre\ious war years. From the start Saint Mary's girls got into the swing 
of an intensified Physical Education Program. Added to the regular sports — kick ball, hockev, basketball, 
\-olley ball, and tennis — were track, badminton, and liowling. the latter two affording an 0|)porttmity for 
an additional hour a week of physical education. 

The tradilional Sigma-Mu party continued at high pitch throughout the year. With blowing bobs and 
rah, rah, rail's, the peppy cheer leaders in blue and red respectively roused spcctatin' femmcs to catch cheers 
for home and \isiting teams alike. Donning" Sigma colors were A\era, Burgard, Royall, and Slater; sport- 
ing the Mil blue were Goerch, .Shamburger, Sullivan, and Fleenor. Late in the spring the Athletic ban- 
quet brought the sports season to a close. The Letter Club occu]3ied the center of the floor as well as the 
center of attraction. Awards were presented, and the banc|uet culminated with the tradilional friendship 
circle and singing of taps.

KICK BALL was the first major sport of ihe year. Some of the enthusiasts found, after battering a 
few toes, that there was an art to kicking the ball ! Evidently the Mu's kicked harder and more furiously, 
for they came out the winners. Composing the ALL-.STAR team were White, Bunn, Eleanor Thomas, 
Griffin, Lane, Martin, M. M., Banks, Avera, Hunsucker, and Holland, with Shamburger as manager. 

HOCKEY came heralding winter. Clashing" sticks, and skinned knees accompanied this rough-and- 
ready sport, hut still it proved exciting and popular. The all-stars were Moomaw, DesChamps, Edmunds, 
Elizabeth Thomas, Long, Gregory, Banks, Smith, V., Dawson, P., Cooper, B., White, Lee, Royall, Bunn, 
and Woolard, with Anderson as manager. The Mu's led the field. 

BOWLING, an ofT-campus acti\ity, had as its six champs: Boyce, Griffin, B., Alligood, Hoffman, C, 
Misenheimer, and Wellons. Sigma's won. 

PING-PONG, this year as last, was an all-around minor sport. Again Barnie White took top honors, 
wilh Jean S\illi\an as runner-up.

BADMINTON was ihe most popular minor sport, Iiattin^ the bird holdina; interest for many beginners 
and veterans. The tournament was tops on the sport program for a few weeks during early spring. Good 
players were Gregory, DesChamps, Manship, and White, B. 

VOLLEY BALL, SOFTBALL, and TENNIS were major sports of the spring season. 



"On your marlc, get set, go!" Newcomers to Saint Mary's physical activities were track and field, dif- 
ferent and Cjuite strenuous but nevertheless popular. Those distinguishing themselxes in dashes and hmdles 
were Holland, Bain, Bryant, Terry and Gates; in jumping, Parker, Mildred, Goerch, and Peete; in tlirow- 
ing, White, Bunn. We here at Saint Mary's enjoyed a full, tuned-to-the-times athletic program through- 
out '44-'45. And it was fun!

DANCE MARSHALS 

All of the success ( besides our own particular charms) of the monthlv girl-breaks is cei tainly due to these 
dance marshals who have smoothed many an awkward siil into hea\en by just Ihe right introduction on 
the dance floor. They have arranged for suitable music, jive and otherwise; they have served "cokes" and 
have been nice hostesses in the parlour . . . they ha\'e aflforded entertaininent we will long remember. 

OUTSTANDING GIRLS 

Each year the student body .selects eight girls for their outstanding achie\cments, leadership, and scholar- 
ship in (heir years at Saint Mary's. And here are the eight girls who ha\e received the highest honor, be- 
sides the Student Go\ernment offices, which the student body can bestow. Turn the pages.

While other prices 
sing soprano 




Through the years the price of 
electricity has gone loiver and 
lower and lower. 



Eleotrieity 
takes the 
basso part 

so MANY members of the cost-of- 
iving chorus are hitting high notes 
these days that you may easily miss 
one performer still rumbling along 
in the lower registers. 

The basso is electricity. Its 
price was low when war began — 
and h^s stayed there. In fact, it 
directly reversed the rising trend. 
Government figures show that the 
average price of electric service 
has actually declined during the 
uar period! 

That's nens. these days. It's the 
product of sound business manage- 
ment, plus the hard work of your 
friends and neighbors in this self- 
supporting, tax-paying company. 

And it's the promise of plentiful. 
Ion-priced electricity to run the 
modern marvels you'll have when 
you start keeping house after the 
war.

BUILDERS OF DREAMS 


T7"ISI0NS created by the imagination precede the achievement of any 
* really great accomplishment. The ability to weave the threads of 
imagination into the finished fabric is equallv important. 

It has been the privilege of the Edwards & Broughton Comp.any to co- 
operate with the staff of the St.\ge Coach in creating their vision into 
material form. 

Such cooperation is one of the "visions" which precede the building of 
a successful business, and is a part of the working policy of the Edwards & 
Broughton Company. 

To those Staffs desiring complete cooperation, we offer unexcelled service. 

You, too. may be proud of your annual.
